Subject: Pucker up, baby!
A philandering actor is murdered on a movie set. There are many with motives, but the dumb cops pick his ex-wife as the chief suspect. Enter a handsome script writer to save the day. This is a good little who-done-it with plenty of humor supplied by a not-so-dumb studio cop and the studio head who is a parody of Sam Goldwyn. If you think about it, the modus operandi is really farfetched. So don't think about it. Why ruin the fun? Bela Lugosi and Edward "Van Helsing" Van Slone have supporting roles as studio executives. Fast paced and well produced with a good cast. An enjoyable hour and ten minutes, especially for classic mystery fans. FOOTNOTE: As Hollywood's Yogi Berra, independent producer Sam Goldwyn's infamous mangling of the English language resulted in timeless quotes like, "A verbal contract isn't worth the paper it's written on," "If I could drop dead right now, I'd be the happiest man alive" and "Include me out." Google his name for dozens more.

Lots of compression artifacts, jerky movement of actors - I couldn't take it. There's another copy http://www.archive.org/details/TheDeathKiss" rel="nofollow">here.

This is definitely a B-movie. Poor acting and poor script. But considering that it was done in 1932, one year after I was born, and talkies were still relatively new, it is probably worth watching to appreciate how quickly they learned the trade.
